West Ham United v Crystal Palace 28-02-2015. 12.45. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game Tottenham 2-2 West Ham A strong live up was announced as Nolan found himself benched as Kouyate moved back into midfield as Reid returned to defence. Spurs started brightly but were restricted to long range efforts and Bentaleb went close. Rose and Kane went close again fro the home side but bar that Adrian only had long range efforts to deal with. The hammers restricted Spurs and started to impose themselves into the game and took the lead when Cresswell played in another lovely cross and found Kouyate between defenders and he headed home. Lloris had to be alert from another cross as Valencia got on the end of it but could only find Hugo's face. The hammers pressed for a second and Spurs went in..
Nicky Henderson novice hurdlers to fly Seven Barrows' Cheltenham Flag, but "A Team" Chase more glory!
by Randy Rann on 24 Feb at 20:46
Nicky Henderson media day, gets the Cheltenham Festival juices flowing! A lucky invite as Dean's (Drobgod) wingman was gratefully accepted as the Cheltenham bound charabanc parked itself on the Seven Barrows lawn, as trainer Nicky Henderson opened his doors once again to the media scrum. After ditching the Sat-Nav and following our noses we made it just in time for the parade of stable stars. L'AMI SERGE was first out of the boxes and quite apt too, as the Grade 1 winning novice hurdler gets the ball rolling in the curtain raising Supreme Novice in exactly a fortnight's time. He looked well, but they all did and Henderson was confident he'd run well. He didn't say he was scared of Willie Mullins's hotpot Douvan, but did say he can't worry about what armoury his rival has got and just dream about what's in store for..

First round value in Dubai
by undertherobe on 22 Feb at 22:21
The ATP tour stops off in three locations this week before the 2015 Davis Cup gets underway next week. We have ATP 500 events in Dubai and Acapulco and an ATP 250 event in Buenos Aires . This blog focuses on the event in Dubai with four of the Top 10 in action and all the eight seeds coming from the Top 20. However, I wanted to focus on those at the lower end of the rankings and there is definitely some value to be had when looking at the qualifiers and wildcards in Dubai The Wildcards Outside of the Grand Slam events, we usually get 3-4 wildcards per tournament and this week, the tournament committee have awarded three of them to a mix of players. Realistically, none of the wildcards are likely to reach the weekend but that doesn’t mean that they don’t offer..
